We have great news! ColorofChange has been selected as one of three nonprofit groups that will receive funding from CREDO in August 2015. In order to earn the most funding, we need the support from ColorOfChange members like YOU.
CREDO is a progressive activist network and a provider of mobile and long distance phone services, as well as the CREDO credit card. They donate a portion of their revenue to a wide range of nonprofit groups. Last year, they donated more than $2 million and, since 1985, CREDO has donated more than $78 million.
This month, anyone is invited to vote for the groups they think should receive funding. This is where you come in. The more votes we receive, the greater our share of funding. ColorOfChange does not take money from big corporations and funders that don't share our values, so this support from CREDO will go a long way to helping us raise our voices and make a real impact with our work.
Voting is easy and free! Just go to www.credodonations.com. Please be sure to vote by Monday, August 31st.
Thank you for your continued support and engagement.
Thanks and Peace,
Rashad and the rest of the ColorofChange team.
While you were streaming Orange is the New Black, Netflix was running ads on a site that incubates hate !
Can you chip in $5 to alert Netflix subscribers that the streaming service is fueling hatred ?
The website Reddit still has several forums explicitly dedicated to anti-Black hate speech.Over 49,000 people have joined ColorOfChange member Casey Stevens' campaign to demand that Netflix #DumpReddit by pulling its ads until Reddit adopts explicit policies against hate speech. But Netflix is still advertising on Reddit — we need to let subscribers know that their favorite streaming movie service is funding hate speech!
It's time to ratchet up the pressure on Netflix on Netflix by sending digital ads served to its subscribers. Netflix's customers have a right to know where it stands on the issue of anti-black hate speech.
We can make sure that the next time subscribers search for a new episode of Orange is the New Black, they know their monthly fee is funding hate speech. But we need your help. It costs $2,000 per day to keep these ads running. So to keep the ads running for the next two weeks we need to raise $28,000. Will you contribute?
Subscribers need to tell Netflix that they won't tolerate its funding of hate speech. Can you contribute $15 now to help us let subscribers know what Netflix is doing with their money? If you've saved your payment information with ActBlue Express, your donation will go through immediately:
Hate speech on Reddit has real world consequences. White supremacist groups are using Reddit as a recruitment ground — this puts Black lives in real danger! As one of the premier companies advertising on Reddit, Netflix's actions set the tone for other advertisers. If it removes its ads other companies will likely follow suit, putting financial strain on Reddit to make changes.
Sending out digital ads targeting Netflix subscribers and asking them to tell Netflix to #DumpReddit or they will dump their subscription willforce Netflix to make a decision about what it values more — its customers or being a premier advertiser on Reddit. Many of Netflix's customers are likely unware of how it is spending its money. We are confident that once they find out the truth they will join the 49,000 people who are demanding that they take a stand against hate. Your contribution can help us have an impact that will shake up the internet industry!
Will you donate $15 right now to make sure Netflix subscribers know they're funding hate speech? If you've saved your payment information with ActBlue Express, your donation will go through immediately:
